This beautiful wrought iron sign stand will accommodate signs from 18 inches wide to 23 inches wide and up to 36 inches high that have a straight top (although the picture shows a curved top sign installed). It comes complete with two ground stakes that the vertical posts bolt onto , two vertical posts, a curved top bar with scroll, a cross-bar with scroll, and four brackets extending from the vertical posts that support the sign with screws. All parts are zinc-coated, primed with a high-quality metal primer, and given two coats or Rustoleum metal enamel.
If you buy a sign from us at the same time, we will attach steel support plates to the sign with epoxy and screws so that it matches the screw holes of the post brackets, making installation of the sign very simple. However, this stand can also be used with other signs of the appropriate size as well, but may require additional installation steps such as drilling into the sign.
Weight limit is 100 lbs for this stand using our stakes driven into the ground; if the vertical posts and stake are set in concrete, the sign's weight limit is 200 lbs, much greater than most signs this size weigh.
We use a ground stake system as the foundation for this sign stand; simply pound with a hammer steel zinc-plated stakes into the ground about 18 inches deep and then bolt the vertical posts onto the stakes. This works well with topsoil, clay and most mixed soils found in lawns and landscaped areas; however, it will not be effective in loose sand (the stakes will work loose)or rocky,hard-packed dirt (you will not be able to pound the stakes in). For these you will need to dig a post-hole 18 inches deep and a about a foot wide and surround the vertical post/stake assembly with concrete (preferred) or rocks, filling the hole to ground level.The steel used for posts and cross-beams are very strong; however the stakes may loosen in very strong winds unless they are set in concrete.
We also offer this stand in two other widths: 33 inches (Model SDF-33) and 20 inches (Model SDF-20). Model SDF-33 is for signs with widths from 23 inches to 30 inches. Model SDF-40 is for signs from 36 inches wide ti 30 inches wide. Model SDF-20 is for signs with widths from 12 inches to 18 inches.
The maximum height of this stand is 66 inches from ground level to high point on the top beam; we will make the stand shorter if you give us your required height.
